Well this is very handy: a compliation of all the diet stories in this week’s National Enquirer. I’d heard some of these tidbits before (for instance, that Star Jones needs a body lift to remove extra skin, which is totally normal if you’ve had weight-loss surgery). And yet here they are, all in one place.
Poor Kirstie Alley is facing yet another weight loss scandal. This time, her reported 74-pound weight loss on the Jenny Craig program has left her with sagging skin on her stomach. She’d like to get it removed with surgery, but unfortunately can’t – it would break her contract with Jenny Craig. Her contract with them clearly forbids “any surgery of any kind”.
Except, now I see that the Skinny Website is really all about being Skinny. They posted an adorable picture of Kelly Clarkson with the comment that she has “totally let herself go.” Gross. Nevermind.
Oh, and per IMDB, Courtney Love is talking about her weight loss in more detail:
[S]he achieved her new look thanks to 1,200-calorie Isopure shakes and fish and vegetables. And her willpower was helped by her determination to squeeze into a pair of Todd Lynn trousers, which she wore to a Beverly Hills party on Monday night. She told People magazine, “They’re Todd Lynn, they’re sample size, they’re from the runway.” Love also explained why gastric surgery wasn’t an option for her: “I’m not eligible for that. It’s illegal for me to get that. You have to be 100 pounds overweight, you have to be grossly obese.”
It is hard to keep up with all this celebrity gossip! Phew! Fortunately, the tabloids only care about women gaining and losing weight, otherwise it would be twice as hard. Oh, I’m sorry, was that sarcasm that slipped out right there?
